This is the LEPIN  05026 – Death Star II – UCS Real Reviews from our lovely customer nickname Christian Schröder at Germany.
So, a few words about Death Star 2.
Actually, I did not want to open a review thread, but somebody has to start.
Besides the hawk, the SSD and the ISD, it’s the model I’ve been looking forward to the most.
I ordered at “A Building Blocks Store”. The shipping was not as fast as my previous orders at Dreamhouse, but still OK. I have no stress anyway.
Actually, I wanted to wait a while with the construction, but I was too excited then and made quite fast sorting.
Again a lot of light gray, dark gray and black. Many Technic rods etc …
The sorting went well by the hand and the construction could start.
Well, the structure was … different … It’s just a huge hemisphere with some parts accumulation in it.
The “quarter circle plates” are all quite strange. So 1000% does not seem to fit, which does not detract from the model, which is a station under construction.
The open parts of the DS2 were sometimes a change to the whole plates for the shell.
The whole part is extremely fragile. The good person does not have the right place to tackle it properly. You have to be careful.
I have missed some parts of the outer shell. Some of them are not noticeable, others are. Since the DS2 is relatively high for me, but that does not matter at first. I hope the shop sends it to me with the next order.
The stone quality is Lepin-typical. Some a bit too easy.
I am satisfied with the huge wrecking ball. The setup was a change in a positive sense.
Now I have to think about my space.
I let pictures speak:
